Well. The Ramones anyway.

Never really got them. I can see why they were exciting at the time but the whole kind of "educationally subnormal" thing just didn't click with me.

I like the intelligence The Stranglers and The Pistols. I like the horror camp of The Damned and the dystopian gloom of Killing Joke.
But I can't get the sloganeering of The Clash or the Football terrace yob mentality of Cockney Rejects or Sham.

So I put the Ramones in that second camp. Dopey twats!

Can anyone give me a song that would change my mind?

:grin:

It IS bemusing seeing all the shirts on so many people who you just know don't have a clue about the Ramones.

I like them, always thought of them as a male version of 60s girl bands like Shangri-las, Ronettes, etc, but not as pleasant to hear (or see ;) ) ... bubblegum rock with 'punk' lyrics. Definitely came across as moronic but their songs for me are clever. JJ's Go Buddy Go reminds me a bit of Ramones type material.
'Peaches - A Chronicle of The Stranglers from 1974 to 1990', out 2014 on Soundcheck Books.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.

I think other bands did dumb bubblegum pop punk better than the Ramones - The Dickies spring to mind - but maybe the Ramones justified their reputation as they were the first to play that sort of music. The Dickies are great live by the way- really good fun.1

Regarding the Pistols, some Einstein on the forum would disagree with you on that.
Oh the irony.
He/She said they hated Steve Jones cos he was thick! :roll:
Can’t remember who said it but I’m sure a search on the forum would bring up their name.
Jonesy’s Dyslexic or whatever and was a pilfering little fucker but he certainly ain’t thick. Created one the best albums ever, got one of the best Les Paul sounds ever, owns a football team, got his own radio show and was at one point drowning in LA pussy. If he’s thick then I ’ll have a bit of that thickoness too thank you very much.
Wrote one of the most entertaining and funniest autobiographies too, like, ever.
